-- We come into contact with contaminants every day – dioxin from tobacco products, nitrates in processed meats, carbon tetrachloride (compound used in dry cleaning that is absorbed through the skin), chlorine (absorbed through the skin in the shower and ingested through drinking unfiltered tap water) and additives in processed foods.
Daily exposure to even low levels of chemicals and contaminants, previously thought to be safe, may lead to accumulation in the body with potentially serious results. In fact, the average North American ingests up to five pounds of chemicals each year just from the foods they eat.
The body has a built-in method of eliminating toxins, but it can only handle so much. Exposed to a heavy burden of toxins day after day, the body can reach a point where it can’t cope anymore – and the chemicals begin to accumulate. This causes all kinds of problems – first acute, then chronic, leading to possible degenerative changes. Accumulated toxins can also affect the mind and fog the thinking process.
“You can’t avoid coming into contact with contaminants,”
says Claude Matar, M.D., a board-certified neuropath who has made a lifetime study of how toxins affect the body, “but there are things you can do to minimize your risk.”
To improve understanding of toxins and their effect on the body, Matar often recommends that his patients read Clear Body, Clear Mind, by international best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard.
“Hubbard’s research into how the toxins accumulate and what exactly is needed to get the body to release them is a breakthrough,”
he says. “This simple regimen of supplements, exercise and sauna eliminates stored toxins and restores the body – and the mind – to a clean, clear condition. Blood tests taken before and after doing the program show significant differences in the level of toxins and chemicals in the body.”
